  1. I'm sorry. I would have hoped things would have gotten easier for you since I last checked this thread. I can't believe there are really people out there who have nothing else to do than put others down. Are their lives better because they made you feel like ? I was raised better than that & I assumed most people were too. Some people just suck...there's no other way to say it. I hope you have a better week ahead
  2. Thanks Cariv, to you also :) I've commented before on how weather can effect a persons mood. Such a strange phenomena...but it does happen. Hope your days are bright & sunny for a long time to com!!!!!!!!!
  3. Good News: My oldest son got called up to play on the top level soccer team in his age bracket. Bad News: I have to miss it to coach my daughters team at the same time
  4. I got back onto the soccer field & didn't want to rip the head off the person who sidelined me for the last 8 months. the old me would have taken a run at him the first chance I got...I'm maturing
  5. that I woke up feeling pretty well today, after having a massive panic attack last night & assumed I was going to die.
  6. Welcome :) I'm sorry for all you are going through, but you are definitely in the right place. There are some wonderful people here, just like you & I who really can help. We're not professionals but in my opinion, sometimes the words of someone who can relate to my struggles helps more than anything. I hope you find that here also. One thing I wanted to point out is your lack of sleep. I'm sure your tired (no pun intended) of hearing about it, but exhaustion is our own worst enemy. It puts our minds & bodies through so much strain & can make things 1000x worse for you. I'm not going to preach about a "sleeping pattern" because I think that term is BS. Every one of us is different & I don't know anyone who has a "regular sleeping pattern". With the craziness of every day life I think it's impossible. Running yourself down is going to do so much more harm than good in the long run. Basically your mind is just too tired to function properly other than necessary motor skills. I even tried it a few times. It's worked for a short period of time but the depression & anxiety always came back hard & fast, sometimes worse than before. As you're working on yourself mentally, don't forget to take care of yourself physically. :)
  7. I'll never understand why if someone is genuinely happy, people have to question why. Like being happy is abnormal. Or they assume it's induced by something else like narcotics. I'm sorry @MayzeeDog0518 but he sounds like the type that will only drag you down. I would be over the moon if someone went out of their way for me on my birthday. To put so much thought into a gift for someone you care about only to have them act like it doesn't really matter really sucks (& I've been there also). Not to mention it's also a real s***ty thing to do or say to someone you supposedly care about. You can love & be loved. Adequate? I'm not sure any of those exist, either male or female. But you are on your way to being an RN. It takes a huge heart to want to be in that line of work & that is the most "adequate" quality a person can have...caring. Stay true to who you are. It sounds like it took a lot for you to get here & is working great for you! You give off a wonderful vibe. Don't sacrifice that for anyone! The right person will feed off your positive energy & reflect it back towards you. Hell we've never met & you've already made me smile
  8. oddly enough...I'm kind of craving Peeps now lol
  9. tired as hell, working too much because money is tight. having back problems again because of working too hard. It's a s***ty cycle. It could always be worse though (that's me trying to stay positive lol)
  10. I'd probably think I was a bit of a d**k at first, but because I'm usually pretty stand-offish when meeting new people. But once I got to know me I think I'm a pretty hot . Lots of fun, funny as hell, loyal...I think I just described my dog.
  11. I'm sorry you've been through such hell. Believe me though, your teen years are definitely NOT going to be the best years of your life. Why do you think there are so many depressed teenagers?! Your teens are hard years. Kids are mean and hurtful & you should be glad that you made it through. It hurt, but you are done & never have to go through your teens again. If you can get through that, than you can get through anything. One of the hardest things you are going to have to do is just stop giving a about what other people think. Take all that negative energy, those hurt feelings the bullies made you feel & turn it around. There are so many things in this world to make us sad, don't let people be the cause of more for you. Happiness starts from within. If there are things you don't like about yourself, then start making small changes. Find that strength inside you & start to live a life that you want. Not live your life by being afraid of what others think. The best years of your life are ahead of you...trust me.
  12. @maxedgrace I feel more like I'm sorry that I can relate. I hate knowing someone else out there is going through the same struggles. Klonopin is exactly what I had in mind, I'm on that also :) The med I tapered off of was Celexa. I can see how going off both your meds at the same time can give you anxiety. Not to mention I'm sure there is some validity to the thought of your body adjusting. I'm hoping it passes quickly for you. Our minds can be our own worst enemy, especially when we get over tired & aren't feeling well to begin with. So I hope you got a good nights rest & are feeling better today. Write me any time you need to.
